    We are looking for a good fixer in Turkmenistan and another in Kyrgyzstan.
    Planning to shoot in mid 2015.
    Any help appreciated!

    This previous request for filming in Turkmenistan might be of interest to you.

    Also you might be interested in contacting production service companies in Istanbul who have valuable experience of filming in the “stans”.

    Hope that helps.

    With kind regards,

    I run a tourism and transportation company based in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. Depending on the project, we may be able to help directly or I can recommend a great guy who works as an independent fixer. What precisely do you feel you’ll need?


    We are based in Moscow, but we also work in all the former Soviet Republics. We’ve recently arranged a number of shootings in Azerbaijan and Uzbekistan and will be happy to help you with your projects in Turkmenistan and Kyrgystan.

    Please drop me an email at with the details and I’ll be pleased to discuss any fixing or producing requirements.

    Hi Sina, I am a freelance Production Manager/Producer but have also worked as an overland expedition leader in recent years. I have led expeditions throughout Central Asia, including Turkmenistan and Kyrgyzstan, in 2010, 2012, 2013 & 2014 so have a lot of recent images, extensive knowledge and excellent local contacts. I am in the process of setting up a location service facility to encourage filming in this part of the world! Please do get in touch if I can help. Best wishes. Helen

    Hi Sina,

    I have contacts with top professional filmmakers both in Turkmenistan
    and Kyrgyzstan who annually attend and screen their documentaries
    or/and feature films at various festivals and forums in Moscow. Most
    of them would be happy to work with int’l crews and provide their own
    equipment, transportation, English-speaking assistants etc. for a small
    budget – relatively.

    Feel free to contact me at

    Best regards,

    Eugene Zykov
    Producer, Founder & Owner
    Russian Film Commission

    Please check
    This company operates in Kyrgyzstan and has the connections at the highest possible level of the country.
